Sweet November Preview Day 1 "Josie's Cupcakes and Emaline's Gifts"

Welcome to the first of three days of Sweet November previews for the month of January. The Fairwees are back again, this time with some birthday party fun. Today we are featuring Josie's Cupcakes and Emaline's Gifts.

First up is Josie perched atop a delicious cupcake. Of course I made my cupcake chocolate with butter cream frosting as that is my favorite! Even though I colored the "paper" portion of the cupcake with Copics I also overlayed it with vellum cut with the the brand new C.C. Designs Cupcake Cutter which is also new for this release. I also used some Ranger Glossy Effects on the cupcake sprinkles for a candy look and feel. The sentiment is from last month's C.C. Designs Amy R Heart-y Sayings set. I broke the sentiment up by stamping on two hearts cut from C.C. Designs Big Hearts Embossing Cutters.


Products: Sweet November stamp, C.C. Designs sentiment and Cutter dies, My Mind's Eye dp, PTI button and twill, Ranger Glossy Effects, Spellbinder Nestabilities, Copic markers
Copics: Skin-E000, E00, E11, R20; Hair-E50, E51, E53, YR23; Clothing-R20, R22, R24; Wings-G0000, Cupcake-B0000, B000, BG10, E33, E37, E29, E81, W00, 0, R81, R83; Shadows-B0000

Next is Emaline's Gifts. She's one happy girl - look at all those fun presents she is juggling. Since I used such bright colors in the various patterned papers, I decided to include lots of white in the image, including the dress and the presents, adding splashes of color on the dress sash and bows. The ribbon treatment is simply a piece of scrunched up ribbon remnant which I tied with thread, adding a button and sentiment. Can you see the tiny candles? Those were cut from the new C.C. Designs Candle Border and were actually left over from one of tomorrow's Sweet November projects.

  13. LOL... here I colored up the cuppie as vanilla with chocolate frosting because that is my fave, too funny!
    These are both so special Nancy, the papers and colors are great but what I really love are the clever touches that you always come up with... like the vellum cupcake wrapper and the tied up bit of ribbon with the button, they are just fab ideas! :)

  20. Hi Nancy. First let me say that you have used just about everyone's products that I love!!! This is some of my all time favorite papers. I love all of Amy Y's stamps(Josies the most) and AmyR's sentiments rock! lol...You are a lady after my own heart. lol... Now let me just say that your coloring on both these little ladies and the way that you have used the lighter colors to bring out the paper and the stamps is just over the top PERFECT! I love real you have made Josies cupcake look as well. I can see why Amy is having you show off some of her newest stamps as your are really really talented. Have a great day.
